Im making the jump to all grain after about 8 extract batch's this is what i made today


mashtun by DuncanIda, on Flickr

I made a MT and a HLT, but i been reading trying to figure out how to do all grain and people said with this setup you can not fly sprage that your way better off doing Batch sparge.. so i guess i have a extra one or if i ever get a false bottom i have a hlt ready... anyone have some good reading for batch sparging and making the jump to all grain now im scared on a side note i found a guy that bought 207 10 gallon Rubbermaid coolers at a auction so i got mine for 20 a pop...

Just for simplicity and to get the procedures down I would look into getting an all grain ingredient kit. Then you can concentrate on brewing instead of the ingredients. Many of the online stores have a large selection to chose from. Hopefully I will be following your lead soon. I'm in the process of getting together all the hardware.

So lemme get this right for a all grain brew day i would add grain to correct temped water to reach the correct temp mash temp, then let it sit for a hour the water amount should be around 1.25 quarts to 1 lbs of grain correct? then i collect my first runnings after that hour and see how much i collected then add the diffrence then devide that by 2 and run 2 sparges? am i thinking about this right?

If I was you, If you do not have beersmith. Go to beersmith.com and download a "Free" 20ish day trial. It helped me make the switch. Once you plug in your recipe and select your sparge method. Click on "brewstep" beersmith with tell you excatly what you need from water temp to sparge water needed ect. I would go with an IPA because its simple. You will only get better with each AG batch. *make sure you plug in your equipment also*
Hope this helps make the switch easier. You will be shocked on how easy AG brewing is.

Cheers,

Beersmith was a huge help. Better than a few of the free softwares I had tried. I think I'm going to have to pay for it in the next week or so.
